A rare Golf Story for those of you that partake and enjoy the game. Yesterday, here: http://www.kleincreek.com/golf/proto/kleincreek/index.htm
I am having the worst round of my life, worse than the first day I played. I could not do anything right, I sucked, worse than sucked.
So we get to the 14th tee, 180 yard, par 3, straight into the wind. water in front and to the left of the green. I guessed a 200 yard shot. 5 wood is the choice.
So I over draw the ball onto the left bank, bounces into the water. Not unusual, happens all the time. Now usually I would drop a ball as close to the water as I could and cut about 80 yards off of the shot. Nope, tee up another one. The round is lost anyway and I am going to have to pay all of my wagers.
This time, it draws right in to the middle of the green, the way I imagined the first shot happening. Well, we watched it get close and then it disapeared, a hole in 3!
This has to be one of the rarest things in golf, since most people would drop closer to the hole. I have witnessed many holes in one, but never this. ROFL

Congrats (I guess?). I've never heard of that happening before. I need to go out and do 9 soon. I haven't been out yet this year.

It really was, espcially since I am still waiting on my first hole in one. I did just hit that ball once, but it was a 3!

Nice save of par! Sounds like one of my rounds.

This was the highest score of my life, 25 shots higher than Saturday. Hope you do not do that.

That is a Pro Sand Wedge, I would be hitting a full wedge or little 9 depending on the wind. Did it back up into the hole?

That is pretty cool. I was with a friend once who on a short par 4 probably accomplished one the weirdest things I have ever seen. He slices his tee shot out of bound and is mad. So he tees up for his 3rd shot and wails on it. We see it heading for a tree and then lose track of it (sort of a slight hill that blocks the view of the hole between it and the tee box). So we walk up to the tree and start searching for the ball. Now the tree is about 290 out and slightly to the right of the green and we are searching all over and finding nothing when a guy yells out to look in the hole. We think the guy is just pulling our leg but we have not found the ball. So we go look in hole and sure enough the ball is in there. Now we will never know if this is that guys idea of a practical joke or he was for real. We ask him what happened and he says it glanced off the tree and went straight onto the green and rolled right into the hole.

It makes a sweet story whether the guy did it as a practical joke or it really happened the way he said it did.

Sadly I have never had a spectacular thing happen for me on a golf course in the times I have played. Though I once shot an 80 using nothing but Irons on a regulation par 70 course. I had given up hope of ever hitting my woods right that week. Thankfully unlike God and Lee Trevino I can hit a 1 iron.

Cool Story, I want to believe he did it.
Something to be said for being relaxed and to have already hit the shot once. I heard of a guy doing this on a par 4 at Pawnee Prairie (now called Tex Consolver) in Wichita, very wind aided. I think it was on his first swing though. The hole is 370, South to North. The wind really blows out of the South out there in the Summer.

Nice job. I've never had a hole-in-one. I did hole out from around 120 yds on a par 4 for an eagle once.

You must have hit a great TBall as well, congrats! I did that twice in the month of October, '91 and have not done it since. Both were from 150 yards. That has to say something about how wierd things go in this game.

If you can hit long irons, especially a 1 iron, you must have a very good swing. Sounds like good course management to me.

I hit it 7 years ago when I was 28. Now, my SW goes about 80-85 yds. I would probably have to hit an easy PW now. That distance is inbetween clubs for me now..my GW is about 100-105.

The shot actually went past the hole up a ridge and trickled back down into the hole. Pretty lucky, but I guess you have to have the skill to get it somewhat close to the hole.

My Mom had a hole in one on a 170 yard hole with a 7 wood a couple of years ago in a ladies golf tournament at Hardscrabble CC in Fort Smith where the Rheem Classic is played(Nationwide Tour).

My sister had a hole-in-one on a 109 yard par 3 - with a 3 wood. She's played 2 rounds in her life. She rubs it in thick each time she sees me too. She even gave me a framed newspaper clipping of the event. It's an absolute nightmare.

Given the way my golf "career" has gone, I figure if I ever hole out from beyond 100 yards it will be on a par 4 for double bogey after going out of bounds twice off the tee.

With the exception of the last two times I've been out, I actually am playing the best golf of my life. Hell, I've already chipped in twice, matching my total for the previous three years by early May.

Wow...those I/3 blades don't have too much offset...especially on the wedges and short irons. The longer irons have a bit though. I'm sure you at least got your $ back on them though. That's the great thing about Pings...they hold their value...that's for sure.

It was probably me thinking about the offset, you know how goofy we can get about those things.
One of the reasons I jumped on your good deal so quick, is that I knew there would not be a problem getting my money back just like you said. I probably made $40 when the cost of the Sand Wedges is calculated in.
